Societies oriented towards the development of high technology, like the Western World, are not only dependent on an unrestricted information flow, but demand more and more investments in education. Therefore, a new and deepening interest in the factors for possible conditions seems to appear in the public. One of the dominating hypotheses is that cultural conditions determine the basic presupposition for the development of competence and professional mobility. Against this background, it will...

An important part of the article deals with the evaluation as an idea and a method for quality control. It is shown that evaluation of teacher effectiveness is...

This is the second article on the competence theme, which aims at demonstrating the consequences of a new educational paradigm, namely materials-directedness. By this is meant the conceptual control of the built-in disparity of educational materials. By means of a new method for structural analysis (in a biological sense), it is shown how conceptual relations and dimensions of a literary text are laid bare. The demonstration text, which is a description of the idea of behaviourism, is analysed... Topics: instructional materials, competence development, conceptual depth, fiction

On the basis of a dialogue between two students engaged in solving a problem, it is argued that the students differ in their problem-solving capabilities, that is, they reduce the complexity of the situation in different ways. It is also argued that the students do not exhibit the same form of competence. In other words, they make sense of the complex situation in different ways. Further, it is maintained that existing theories are able to explain different aspects of the problem-solving... Topics: problem solving, learning, competence, control, achievement
The aim of this article is to make a distinction between qualification and competence. Although academic institutions, organisations, companies, and schools are focussing upon competence development as the natural answer to new technical and societal demands, no one has succeeded in providing a satisfactory operational definition of 'competence'. A dictionary search has shown that different areas of science and humanities conceive of competence from an analytical point of view, which, in fact,...

People high in self-monitoring and sensation-seeking tend to be gregarious. For the self-monitor, social interaction is a means to the end of influencing others, and for the sensation-seeker it is a valuable source of stimulation. The present study explored the extent that the two constructs overlap by examining correlations between scores on the Revised Self-Monitoring Scale (RSMS) and Forms IV and V of the Sensation-Seeking Scale (SSS). Another aim of the study was to compare scores earned by... Topics: ERIC Archive, Interpersonal Competence, Personality, Social Behavior
The internship programmes under teacher development commonly make provision for peer observation as a component but what purpose(s) it is meant for, is usually not made explicit, neither to the supervisors nor to the interns. Most of the time, peer observation is done as a ritual and it does not have the desired visibility or significance as the lesson planning or its delivery has. If we intend to develop reflective teachers through a process- based approach, then there is a need to enrich the... Topics: Narratives, Peer Feedback, Reflective Practices, Teacher Competence

The development of Human Resource (HR) competency models is a field that has received a lot of attention over the years. While the importance of competency modeling has been recognized in the HR literature for at least four decades, the conceptual and empirical validation of a competency mapping model for HR professionals has not been addressed comprehensively. The competencies that the HR professionals once needed are no longer sufficient in the new world of HR challenges, hence, the need to...

Psychological literature on field independence shows that the field independent individual possesses enhanced cognitive restructuring abilities, while the field dependent individual possesses interpersonal and social skills. It was hypothesized that field independence would be related to the acquisition of linguistic competence, and that field dependence would be related to the acquisition of communicative competence. The scores of some 300 students on a test of communicative and integrative... Topics: ERIC Archive, Academic Achievement, Cognitive Style, Communicative Competence (Languages),...
The literary richness embedded in quotations has the potential to give students a fresh and creative angle which will inspire them to do better in studies and life.

Tapping into their literary enhancing power not only builds students’ aesthetic sense but also allows them to connect to themselves and others in a better and more...
